Farmer, wife and mother

My husband is the 6th generation on our farm where we grow corn and soybeans. I am an active member of the National Corn Growers Association and Douglas County Corn and Soybean Growers. I also work part-time during the winter months for a tax preparation firm.

Not at this time.

Baking, Cooking, Photography, Running, Fitness

I would like people to understand what we do and why we do it in the ag world. Whenever a new buzzword or food marketing campaign is introduced it can become confusing or spread misinformation about what farmers are doing to grow and raise food on a daily basis. Consumers are looking for answers to their questions, and I want to be one of the individuals that helps them. Positive communication and firsthand knowledge can be a powerful and valuable resource for information.

I grew up on a dairy farm 100 miles south of our current farm. My husband is the 6th generation on our farm, and our farm was recently recognized as a century farm in Minnesota.
